I have this device for almost 2 years now but I'm planning to get a new phone. This is my review and I'll only list the cons. Please note that I'm using the latest firmware as I wrote this, and I've used custom ROMs for this phone.
- Less custom ROM but most of it are for Zenfone 5 but it's 90% compatible with Zenfone 6. Only some custom ROM are available (Resurrection Remix & CyanogenMod) but I think their development has stopped. Source code is not provided by Asus which makes custom ROM unstable.
- Camera quality is 6/10 because of the blurry photos. Great for outdoor but bad for indoor. You'll need more light to make your pictures high quality.
- Performance is 6/10 and can run most games but don't expect smooth gameplay on demanding games. This device has Intel CPU which makes not all games/apps are available. Remember that don't buy a phone with Intel CPU.
- Battery life is 5/10 probably because I've flashed this devices many times and that might affect the phone. It can last for 1 day if you just use it for calling and texting. However, it'll only last for few hours during constant usage (gaming, watch videos, browsing, etc).
- This phone don't have 4G. Technology keeps evolving and not having 4G nowadays will only slows you down.
If you're reading this on 2017+ then I do not recommend this phone since there are better phones out there. This phone is only good as your secondary phone. Well maybe I missed some points but that's all I have to say. Have a nice day.

if you expand he network tab at the top it only lists 2G and 3G. Disappointed, great phone otherwise.
Alas, 12 Sep 2015Can we change the theme ? Just like Asus zenfone 2?Yes you can change the themes of your zenfone 6. Try updating to lollipop with build number WW_126.96.36.199_20151001. It's the latest firmware available for zenfone 6. It took my phone around 30 mins to update but very worth it. Another noticable change is the much better power saver option.
Zenfone 6 A601CG, Zenfone 2 Z551ML, Wich is the best to buy ? thk-u
